It is difficult to put into words how wonderful this book is. I finished it today, and plan on turning back to page one to read it over again. Ronald Rolheiser put into words and concepts issues of spirituality and Christianity that deepened my understanding of where I am and where I need to be. His chapters on incarnation were very powerful; and, his last chapter, "Sustaining Ourselves in the Spiritual Life" gave a good (and empathetic) grounding on how to make these ideas relevant each day.
We chose this as the first book for our parish spirituality book club, and all participants loved it. It generated some excellent discussion, and we found ourselves reflecting on different passages or stories often. Fr. Rolheiser is excellent at putting a slightly different emphasis on some common truths so that they stand out and are relevant to us today; he also promotes a true, healthy balance, which is always important.I especially appreciated his focus on community and our empowerment to make Christ's presence known in the world. Highly recommended!
